Drive a Formula 1 car at the Montmeló circuit in Barcelona.

If you are passionate about motor racing, you must have dreamed of driving a spectacular Formula 1 car and feeling the adrenaline of speed. Well, your fantasy can come true. Go ahead and drive a Formula 1 car at the Montmeló circuit in Barcelona.

Sit behind the wheel of a genuine Formula 1 car and follow in the footsteps of the greats like Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher. It’s time to test your skills as an F1 driver at the home of the Spanish Grand Prix, the well-known Circuit de Catalunya in Montmeló. Here’s how.

Driving at the Montmeló circuit in Barcelona

Undoubtedly you will live an unforgettable experience. Upon arrival, the instructor will greet you at the pit stop area, where the race car stops for repairs, tire changes, fueling or adjustments.

There you will receive the necessary material for the race: helmet, gloves, shoes, didactic material, and the respective uniform to drive. You will receive instructions on how to safely drive a Formula 1 car.

Initially, you will do two simple practice sessions of 15 minutes each in a Formula Renault (about 10 to 14 laps in total) so that you can get the hang of the technique on the track at the wheel of a single-seater car.

These single-seaters are powerful: they use spoilers that push the car against the ground, increasing tire grip. Thanks to their low weight and excellent aerodynamics, they are very fast racing cars, both on the straight and in curves.

After you have a light meal, you will put into practice what you have learned, but now you will take the wheel of an original Formula 1 car, driving the laps you have contracted.

The F1 you will drive has:

  • Ford Cosworth V8 engine
  • Power 700hp
  • Maximum speed of 340km/h.
  • 0-100 km/h in 2.5 sec.
  • Cylinders: 8

You can also hire a video on-board beforehand.
